An exciting opportunity within the sport of athletics is taking place tomorrow, Wednesday 17th September in Melbourne! If you have ever wanted to try athletics but didn't know how, well now is your chance!

In collaboration with Coca-Cola and the Australian Paralympic Committee, Athletics Australia is hosting a number of ‘Get Involved’ athletics sessions across four different states over the next six months. 

We would like to open this opportunity to any Australian with a disability who has never tried athletics, or who has, but would like to find out more about the fundamentals of the sport, and how best to participate further. The day will be hosted by National Events coaches and Athletics Australia staff, and will include group activities based on running, jumping, and throwing. All abilities are welcome.

Please note that places for this are limited, and registrations will be taken on a first come first serve basis. Should you miss out this time around, but are interested, we will endeavor to communicate all information to you post session with suggestions on accessing athletics in your state.

When: Wednesday 17th September, 11am, 1pm and 3pm

Where: Lakeside Stadium Athletics, 31 Aughtie Drive, Albert Park

For: People aged 11 years and over
